Chilaquiles

I had a bunch of corn tortillas leftover from making enchiladas the other night, so I decided to use them to make chilaquiles for dinner yesterday. I thought that I’d made chilaquiles before, but as it turns out, I hadn’t. … Continue reading

Happy (Belated) New Year! Even though we’re already a couple of weeks in, I haven’t had time to write recently–I just moved to Washington, D.C., and this is my first post from my new apartment. I still can’t believe I’m … Continue reading

Winter in Chicago (and ways I’ve cooked up to tolerate it)

Pomodoro Sauce, Our Way

Gazpacho

If you would have told me ten years ago that I’d be making a refrigerated soup out of tomatoes, onions, and cucumber, I probably would have thought you were lying. Growing up, I didn’t even like tomatoes…in fact, I avoided … Continue reading
